Clear Brook High School Awarded National Character Recognition
Posted on 05/20/2020
Brook NSOCClear Brook High School in the Clear Creek Independent School District was named as a 2020 National School of Character by Character.org, a national advocate and leader for character development in our schools and communities. The campus is also the only public high school in Texas to receive this honor out of a total of 84 schools in the country.

“We are pleased to announce and celebrate the schools and school districts who have earned this national recognition,” said Dr. Arthur Schwartz, President of Character.org. “Each of them have put in place a comprehensive approach to help their students understand, care about, and consistently practice the core values that will enable them to flourish in school, in relationships, in the workplace, and as citizens.”

Since its inception, the National Schools of Character program has impacted nearly 3 million students, staff, parents, and community members. The schools and school districts who apply must meet the rigorous standards articulated in Character.org’s 11 Principles Framework for Schools. Each school is evaluated by a team of trained educators and includes a site visit to assess how a school’s “shared values” are motivating students to do the right thing.

“This distinction means the world to the Clear Brook students, staff and parents,” said Dr. Sharon Lopez, principal of the school. “It is a testament to the leadership of the Character Action Team and the work of the whole campus to instill positive character traits into everyday life. Our staff truly feels honored to be members of such a focused team working to educate the whole student and making intentional character decisions to guide learning. We are Clear Brook!”

Character.org will honor the 2020 National Schools of Character during its next National Forum. To learn more, please visit www.character.org/schools-of-character.
